Scoring Rubric:
Responses to this item will receive 0-3 points, based on the following:
3 points: The student shows a thorough understanding of the volume of spheres and
cylinders. The student correctly determines the volume of both the sphere ( 36 ) and
the cylinder ( 36 ) and provides a clear justification in Part C.
2 points: The student shows a partial understanding of the volume of spheres and
cylinders. The student either gets both volumes correct but does not provide a clear
justification for Part C OR the student gets only Part A or Part B correct AND provides a
clear justification in Part C.
1 point: The student shows a limited understanding of the volume of spheres and
cylinders. The student answers only one part of the task correctly.
0 points: The student shows inconsistent or no understanding of the volume of
spheres and cylinders.
